THE SCR ANTON TRIBUNE-WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER L'2, 1002.
The News of
itidOd NEWS OP THE
MINERS GOING BACK
"A 'Tribune' Bulletin Gives the Fiist
Intimation of the Cheerful Tlil-
inga to Cnrbondalinna Good Times
Looked for in the Pioneer City.
Evidences of This on Every Side.
There was i".lolelng umiw In Carbon
lalo vesleidiiy afternoon, when it be
came' known llml tin miners In tluir
convention, nt Wllltes-Hurre, hud voted
to accept tin.' urbltriitlon proposition,
n nil would return to work on 'l'hurs
ilny. ' The llrst news of this happy settlr
.Jiient was given to Carboildlillnns
'through 'tut Associated Press bulletin
posted by thin department of The Tri
bune. This was shortly after 1 o'clock.
Sobm'thereaftcr the curly extras or tho
Scranton iifternoon papers reached the
city with-the details of the result.
There was jubilating Joy us the chee.r
,ful tidings spread throughout the city,
'nunc so than when the ueWs of the nc
'ceptoncH by President Mitchell of Prepl
ilont lionsevell's commission, liven In
.the face of the numerous ussurunees
'Vthnt tlie convention would be favorable
to the plan of settlement, there was
Home doubt and apprehension lest all
'would not lie well In the meeting of
"the mine workers at Wllkes-liune. Hut
I lie announeenient of the result of the
" eimvuntlon, and the assurance that
work would be resumed Thursday,
swept aside all doubt and fear, and the
' pessimists and the doubling; Thomases,
who have hud their inning the last
week or li)ore, lost their jobs.
The universal comment, after a hit of
.felicitation over the good news, vu.
that there will now be the best times in
' Cnrbondnle In a number of years. Thi-
is a most convincing and satisfactory
sign of the eonlldPiice of the people, the
Kreat essential to business prosperity
lii any community. This reeling; runs
lilisli anions every class in the city. The
'condition of the bank deposits ol' a
town Is a good barometer ol' trade Indi
cations. It will lie or interest and the
greatest satisfaction to learn the opin
ions Of the. heads of the banking insti
tutions of Carlmndale.
Clarence !'. Spencer, cashier of the
Merchants' and .Mechanics' bank, when
informed yesterday afternoon by The
Tribune man that the miners were
going back to work on Thursday, re
ceived the news with ohorful satisfac
"Tills will be splendid for Carbon
dale," said Mr. Spencer. "When this
shaky feeling that is here gets out of
the air, we will have good times: the
best, I daresay, In live years. It would
unm ze you to know how, in the face of
strike conditions, we have kept up in
Carbondale. We have not fell the de
gression as one would suppose. Our
merchants do not show they hue tell
it. Vou notice that there has been no
failures I lore, since t lie strike. Then,
take the bank depositors. In our bank,
Lean say that there Is not a dil'feienee
of. two thousand dollars in our deposits
between a year ago and this lime. Of
course there is not now the money
tliero was hi the spiing. lint the com
parison I mention' is line of tills fall
and the fall or linn."
Cashier li. A. Jadwln, of the First
National bank, was just as hopeful and
optimistic. "Things are really excel
lent," ho said. "In the race of the con-
ditinns all summer, easiness men have
held their own splendidly. 1 don't
.know of any weakness any place. AVIth

which has been maintained ever since,
A glance at tin' money order business
is Just as Interesting uli compensating.
Tt Is a staudaid condition tliat this
branch of the postotlice here is self-sustaining-.
That Is, the money received'
for orders Issued here always paid the
orders received In Carbondale from
abroad. During the strike, however
this condition was reversed. There veio
fo many o.ii-ho.nlull.ins uniicin,. i
other places that the money they sent
to tin; folks at home exceeded the sum
on hand for the payment of outside
drafts. This necessitated Postmaster
Thomas making a requisition on the
government for money each week, it
was surprising; the sum of money sent
home each week by striking Carbon
dale minors wot king elsewhere, lint

FIGHT IN HONESDALE
WAS VERY YELLOW
The Twenty Round Go Lasted Only
Five, Then There Were Cries of
. "Murder," "Fnke,"' "Scab" and the
Like Spectators Were Wild Over
the Brown Williams Fiasco. ,
The Carbondale sports who went
oer 'he mountain to llonesdale Mon
day niglil to see "Kid" Brown and
Mack" Williams, or Philadelphia, go
twenty rounds, came home yesterday
morning mighty soieand full of deiiun
clallOii of what in their experiences
was the yellowest exhibition of any
kind of sport. It was a gi eater frost
that the night, itself, and there was a
heay one tailing .Monday nlgiil. Some
one on the way home was mean enough
to exclaim: "Well, what are you kick
ing about'.' Didn't you know the light
was going to lie In llonesdale'.'"
Out back to the frosty lUsco. The go
or the lack of "go" -look place in
Kelleoue park, somewhere up on I'lilou

the "rhuii.ps" posed iii the shivering

thilr records or maybe tliey wen- look

didn't show their gludlator-llko llgttres
until 11 o'clock, Ity tills time the
eiowd wa.- singing lustli.v, "And I wan
ta go aliome,"
The liellei- was that there would be
twenty rounds, but ,tlie "aitlsts" said
line, and they did not go the twenty.
Klw rounds and a half was their limit.
Hut It was enough for the crowd, to
whom everything looked yellow, even
tile greenbacks that were bet.
The rounds were only two minutes
each. An "olllclal" (if lite great "fias
co" had a cow hell which he dong-along-along
when the two minutes was
up. The end came In the middle of the
sixth, Why. no one seems to know,
It Just ended, that's all. It might have

or three, exchanged during the eleven
minutes of walf.lng and foot racing

ON THEO. & W.
Sixteen Cars Loaded with
Washery Coal Fall from
A fatal wreck occurred last night at
S o'clock, on tho Ontario and Western
railroad, Just beyond Preston Park,
about forty-live miles north of Scr.m
tou. Sixteen cars of a. train of twenty-two,
loaded with washery coal and bound
for C'adosla, went over a trestle. Tho
engine and the llrst six cars kept to
It Is feared that one life was lost.
William Smith, of Church street, Car
bondale, middle brakeman of the crew,
was unaccounted for up to 1 o'clock
this morning, und tlie belief Is that he
is In tho heap of wreckage.
The railroad odlela'.s suppose Hie
wreck was caused by a Hat wheel. Tlie
presumption Is that this disabled car
jumped the track, the force of the dis
turbance weakening the trestle, causing
It to give way and plunging the cars
Into the ravine. This trestle has given
the company a good deal of trouble
ever since the construction of the
Scrantou division of the Ontario and
Western. It Is built on a kind or quick
sand, which made it diillcult to main
tain the road level at this point.
The. train left Maylleld yard at L'.lin,
and about S.lu the wreck occurred. Tlie
crew was made up of S. Franz, en
gineer, Jerniyu: Will Duffy, Carbon
dale. conductor: Peter McDouough,
Hiooklyn; Will Smith, brakeman.
Smith, who it is feared went down to
his death in the wreck, was married
and. besides his wife, had four children.
Smith is tlie man who, two weeks ago,
made an heroic rescue of a child at
Olyphunt. He climbed out or the en
gine cab and erupt along to the pilot,
where lie leaned over and snatched the
little ono from death. He was widely
known In Carbondale and was exceed
The wrecking crew of the Ontario

scene, or the wreck at 10.li.". None or
the crew was injured, except slightly,
The scene of last iiightV. wreck is not
far from the fearful catastrophe of last
winter, when a train of forty cars were
wrecked and four of the crew from
Carbondale were killed.

pain In tho back then look to tho condition
of your urine. Take a glass tumbler and

your kidneys aud bladder are In a danger

"I had a frightful pain In my back,
the result of kidney trouble. My
physician seemed powerless to relieve
nie. I determined to try Dr. David
Kennedy's Favorite K'cmcdy ; it
helped me wonderfully, and iu a short
time cured me completely,"
Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy
Is the one medicine that really cures all
diseases of the kidneys, liver, bladder and
blood.rhcutnatisin, dyspepsia and chronic
constipation. It Is wonderful how it
makes that pain in the back disappear,
how it relieves tho desire to urinate often,
especially at nleht. and drives away that

at certain specified times, the commis
sion will hear evidence to be presented.
The parties to the Inquiry will be per
mitted to be present at the hearings,
eithei personally or by counsel.
It Is probable that the llrst sessions
of the commission at which testimony
will be taken will be held In Wllkes
Bnrro, as that city will be most con
venient for the miners' representatives.
Other meetings will be held In Phila
delphia or New York, or in both cities.
Whether the sessions of the commis
sion will be open to the public Is a
question the commission itself will have
to determine, but It is regarded as quite,
likely that at all sessions when testi
mony Is taken, representatives of tho
press will be admitted.
How loiiff the hearings will continue,
nobody can foretell. At their conclus
ion, each member of the commission
will bo supplied a copy of the testi
mony adduced and will consider It at
his leisure. Subsequently, the commis
sion will reconvene, perhaps In this
city, to formulate its leporl for presen
tation to the president.
